About the RHS Flower Show Cardiff

17–19 April 2020

We welcome spring in style at the beautiful Bute Park in the heart of Cardiff City Centre. RHS Flower Show Cardiff celebrates the best of springtime, inspiring gardeners to creatively use their outdoor spaces, and encourages visitors to learn and grow as gardeners.

The RHS Show Cardiff has been held in the parklands of Cardiff Castle since 2005, and in 2015, attracted record crowds with more than 24,000 visitors from across the UK. The setting is particularly appropriate for the first outdoor show of the RHS season, as the parklands are hugely significant in horticultural heritage terms. The show offers an opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the best of horticulture in Bute Park, ‘The Green Heart of the City’.
